Dunham, Governor Roosevelt made a mistake like one of those that caused Blaine's defeat when he characterized all dem ocrats, without exception, as lawless, dishonest and cowardly.

Dunham, of Los Angeles, intended to wage war against the Independence X. & M. com pany for the Hull City placer few re garded the matter seriously. Some of the newspapers a very few by the way heard Dunham's story and deem ing it feasible published items telling of the promised fight. These items were laughed at; they were prepos terous ; the publishers had been im posed upou. To-day Wm. P. Dunham is manager for the Independence Con solidated company. He has full charge of the affairs of the big mine and he and his associates have control of the stock of the new company. This tells the story. It tells in part one of the most remarkable stories in the annals of mining history of the state. Those who know Dunham are not surprised at anything, however big, he may accomplish. A glance at his picture published in this issue will at once show him to be what he is a fighter. Agressiveness is stamped all over his countenance. Nor is this' the extent of his qualifications. lie has shown in the fight he has just won that he has the capacity of handling large affairs in a thorough and mas terly manner, The skill with which he managed to unite the various in terests opposed to the Independence company, gather the large amount of testimony, and then centering all in one supreme effort, was able, so to speak, to storm the enemy's front so hotly that capitulation was evitable, shows that Dunham is a man of more than ordinary ability. W. P. Dunham has been mining now for some ten years. Like many others now rich he went busted first, only to retrieve his losses and to profit hand somely by subsequent operations. He came to Colorado early in the 90's, and it was at Creed that be exhausted what funds he had. He was an early arrival in the Cripple Creek district and to day proudly boasts having only about $200 when he struck the great gold fields. He had, however, other stock in hand that has stood many others in better stead in this camp than a large sum of mon,ey. Dunham bad faith in the future of the now greit camp. He located here, convinced that there was fortune for those who searched dilligently and intelligently for the bidden treasures of Mother Earth. Dunham secured a half interest in the Scottish Chiefs, one of the lodes now comprised within the area of the Hull City placer. From the day that he bought this interest he has fought hard and long to retain it, and only now has he succeeded in proving that his fight was a righteous one and that he was in the ring to win. After all, Mr. Dunham has fought for what he claimed and believed rightfully be longed to him, and he has done what anyone else would have done, provi ded of course, they possessed the nec essary qualifications. The accomplishment of Wm. P. Dun ham places him at once a the front rank of the mining men of Colorado. He is yet a young man, and Gold be speaks for him perhaps even greater things in the future. The two hun dred dollars of 1392 has increased many fold since. Mr. Dunham has made a snug fortune by his recent ac complishment. He is already interest ed largely in Arizona, California, Mex ico and other mining sections, lie will be again beard of in mining circles, and as the article has before stated; do not be surprised at any accomplish ment, however great, of Wo, P.

Do not say: "Let me make you acquainted with," but say, mere ly: "MUs Brown, let me present Mr. Gray to you." If two persons who are introduced are interested in some one art cr science it is well to mention this fact, but in making introductions ft is inadvisable to label people. Do not introduce a woman as "our distin guished poetess," nor a man as "the preatest hero of our recent political battles."

A Minister's Good Work. "I hada severe attack of bilious colic, got a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarahoea Remedy, took two doses and was entirely cured," say Rev. A. A. Power, of Emporia, Kan. "My neighbor across the street was sick for over a week, had two or three bottles of medicine from the doctor. He used them for three or four days without relief, then called in another doctor who treated him for some days and gave him no relief, so discharged him. I went over to see him the nest morning. He said his bowels were in a terrible fix, that they had been running off so long that it was almost bloody flux. I asked him if he had tried Chamberlain's Colic Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and he said, 'No.' I went home and brought him my bottle and gave him one dose told him to take another dose in fifteen or twentv minutes if he did not find relief, but he took no more and was entirely cured."
